    Warid may have more 4G Lte users but speed of Zong 4G Lte is simply Unmatchable. (Tested at Chen One Road Faisalabad and speed always remains constant)

    • faizan

      Speed in faisalabad warid lte

      • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

        Well Its less than 3 times. Even Zong 3G speed reached upto 18 MB

        • Ahmed

          Warid initial thrust

          • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

            you know that it is not possible

            • BadarUI

              How its not possible? 4G spped is upto 150 Mbps

          • ads

            fake

          • adnan

            Ye screeshot boht mushkil se liya hoga ap ne :p experts jantay hain iska matlab

            • ahmed

              yes but this is possible it only a thrust than back in twenties

    • Ahmed

      Warid LTE

      • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

        Testing area and city?? well its still on the lower side

        • Ahmed

          it’s Lahore and always consistent which lacks in zong with pathetic zte equipment

          • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

            well i dont know about lahore i am just talking about Faisalabad. did you ever get speed of warid 4g around 25-30 Mb consistently?

            • Ahmed

              Warid MiFi result as Warid has biggest market share in Lahore still best results

              • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

                well no doubt warid has more market share than zong. but here in faisalabad both dont have huge number of 4g subscribers still warid lacks the punch here

              • Are you able to use any warid SIM in MiFi device?

      • Usman

        Zong’s Super 3G speed in chak Shazad Islamabad.

        • With that speed all you can do is to test your speed twice with their Daily Premium Bundle for Rs. 20 and be happy..

          • Usman

            Then avail 30GB monthly premium Package, avail the premium experience thats it.

    • Eli Ehsan

      that’s barely 4Mb! you know that right? its not even a full fledged 3G let alone 4G… LOL

      • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

        are you mad? you are saying 3479.4 kbps (around 26 Mbps) less than 3G?? think again dude

        • Eli Ehsan

          #RIP basic mathematics….

          • ZeeMap

            Yes that speed is not in kbps, mentioned kBps means, Kilo Bytes per second.

          • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

            Yess RIP Realy

        • Eli Ehsan

          Last I checked 1 Mb = 1024 kbs?! Or have I been living in the Stonehenge?

          • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

            but if you know little bit about Speedtest app it measures 1MB speed as approximately 124 kB/s, so here in my screenshot 3479 kB/s means 28 MB, and you are calling it 4 MB

          • SuperMan

            Ok Guys I am here to solve your confusion ;)

            1 Byte = 8 bits ( 1B = 8b ) note that capital B is for Byte and small b is for bit

            Capital K = 1024

            Small k = 1000

            Network speed is mention in bits per seconds ( b/s )

            File transfer Rate is mention in Bytes per seconds (B/s)

            Now take example of PTCL 1Mb connection ( 1 Mega bits per 1Mb/s )

            Network speed: 1Mb/s = 1024 Kb/s (as 1M = 1024K)

            File transfer speed mention in browser is in Kilo Bytes per second (KB/s) = 1024 Kb/s divided by eight = 128 KB/s

            That is why 1Mb/s internet can give maximum 128 KB/s download speed

            Now come to that 1st screen shot of speed test shared by Zafar.

            Download speed: 3479 kB/s = 3479 / 1000 MB/s = 3.479 MB/s * 8 = 27.832 Mb/s (Typical unit in which ISP advertise there speed )

            Upload speed: 799 kB/s = 799 / 1000 MB/s = 0.799 MB/s * 8 = 6.392 Mb/s

            So in typical case speed is 27.8 Mb/s download and 6.4 Mb/s upload.

            • Syed Usman Shah

              You can suggest then to visit google for Mb to MB conversion.
              I am getting 33mbps on Zong super 3G and in real i am getting 3.2MBps while downloading movie. you can check my screenshot posted as guest Usman

            • Eli Ehsan

              Oh shuckss!! my bad then & thanks superman.. but I still love Batman though.. ;)

      • Fakhre Alam

        i am sure u hardly managed to get passing marks in math.

        • Eli Ehsan

          nope! I passed my grades by giving “5 kilo Aata” to the teachers in my gaon.. :)

          • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

            or something else !!!!!!!!!! God Knows :)

          • Fakhre Alam

            Haha

      • Tàhír Mëhmõõd

        U have wrong info… think before speaking…

    • Faisal

      Bullshit 4G speed it is equal to 3.4 MBps download and 0.79 MBps upload.
      I got 5 – 12 MBps download speed on Zong 3G and
      12 – 36 MBps download speed on Zong 4G
      Lahore

  • Inam

    If only the batteries didn’t burn too quickly – the number of 3G/LTE users would really explode.

    • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

      Lte technology consumes less bettery than compare to 3G

      • Inam

        From my personal experience, I’d have to disagree.

        • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

          Well as per my Oppo find 7 3g consumes more power than 4g

  • Shoaib

    Excellent start of 3G/4G.Results are beyond expectations.Main reason is that 3G/4G users in Pakistan are well aware about benefits of using latest data access technologies.As the rising curve of 3G/4G users has become exponential now, it seems figure will cross 20 million in just six months more.Well done 3G/4G cellular operators.
